‘Freddie Mercury Online,‘ which is one of the most prominent fan pages for late Queen legend Freddie Mercury, has shared two golden-worth photos of Freddie Mercury.
In the caption area, the page revealed a super-rare interview of Freddie Mercury’s ex-lover, Mary Austin, and she was telling the emotional last days of Freddie in the interview with Express Online.
Here’s what Mary Austin said:
“The quality of his life had changed so dramatically and he was in more pain every day. He was losing his sight. His body became weaker as he suffered mild fits. It was so distressing to see him deteriorating in this way.”⠀
Freddie’s friend Peter Freestone on his last days:
“I tend to feel that Freddie had decided he had had enough and it was time to go under his own terms. The difficult truth is that Freddie had been suffering terribly.
Yet Peter still recalls how his friend’s enormous spirit filled the room and the whole house, even at the end, while Elton John remembers Freddie’s still gossiping and teasing from his bed. “

Freddie at the start and at the end of his life💔. — 👉🏻 Freddie's friend Peter Freestone spoke to Express Online about those last emotional days.⠀ ⠀ 🥰 He was part of the small group who shared 12-hours shifts by the star's bedside, keeping him constant company whether he wanted to chat and sometimes even still joke, or just rest quietly. They also stayed through the nights so that he never woke up alone.⠀ The group included Freddie's partner Jim Hutton, ex-girlfriend Mary Austin and Joe Fanelli, former lover and live-in chef.⠀ But none of them was there the moment he died, which happened sooner than anyone had expected.⠀ ⠀ 💥 It was another close friend, famous musician Dave Clarke, who was there.⠀ Freddie had slipped into unconsciousness that day, no longer taking his AIDS medications and the pain killers unable to counter his body's suffering.⠀ Dave Clark said: "The doctors had left, and we knew it was only a matter of time. We were alone… when he passed away."⠀ What happened next rippled out through Freddie's world, but also changed something forever, according to Peter.⠀ Dave added: "I went downstairs to tell Phoebe, his PA, and Joe."⠀ ⠀ 👀 While Peter, Joe and Jim all lived with Freddie at One Garden Lodge, Mary lived nearby. She later recalled Dave phoned her at around 7pm, presumably just after Freddie passed away.⠀ Dave added: "Mary Austin came over, and I phoned Freddie's parents to break the news. He looked at peace."⠀ Mary echoed the same sentiments, saying Freddie "died with a smile on his face… (he) chose his time to die".⠀ Peter said: "I tend to feel that Freddie had decided he had had enough and it was time to go under his own terms."⠀ ⠀ 😢 The difficult truth is that Freddie had been suffering terribly.⠀ Mary says: "The quality of his life had changed so dramatically and he was in more pain every day. He was losing his sight. His body became weaker as he suffered mild fits.⠀ "It was so distressing to see him deteriorating in this way."⠀ Yet Peter still recalls how his friend's enormous spirit filled the room and the whole house, even at the end, while Elton John remembers Freddie' still gossiping and teasing from his bed. #freddiemercury
